Trail Overview

This is an out-and-back trail along the base of Riansares Mountain. There are no real points of interest along the trail. It's a scenic, wooded track that's a bit less technical than the majority of what the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation of Natural Resources calls "drivable trails." Be aware that the trail continues beyond the track in OnX, but it's private property past that, and continuing is trespassing. The yellow posted signs on trees on both sides facing your direction of travel and the large open area are your additional indications that it's time to turn back.


This is an easy, drivable trail. Although the trail is not maintained, it is smooth and unrutted. Outside of wintery conditions, it should be passable for most vehicles.
